"CHELLAH! The is the antic..." Morocco Favorite Tip by naranja

Morocco General: 374 reviews and 375 photos


Favorite thing: CHELLAH! The is the antic roman city of Sala Colonia, not far from Rabat, inside the walls of the necropolis of Chellah, built by the Merinids in the 13th century, midst an exotic garden full of birds and storks. There is little still standing of the roman ruins, but the lush vegetation between the tombs and small temples, huge bamboo and all sorts of tropical fruit trees and plants, give this place some real magic. The minaret of a small mosque is topped with a storks nest. Birds are flying everywhere. I loved this place!
